Bespoke non-contact surface measurement for nuclear and defence

Scantron has a long, illustrious history of working in defence applications where tolerances are critical. Our products have been used throughout the nuclear and defence sector and with over 35 years’ experience, we’ve also developed bespoke solutions for nuclear and defence projects.

Scantron products for nuclear and defence non-contact measurement

Scantron’s Proscan 2100 can perform rapid 3D scanning of surfaces down to sub-micron resolutions. This allows measurement of roughness, flatness, surface area, condition and defectivity, along with many other parameters.

Our DDMS system (Defect Detection Measurement System), along with other bespoke systems, was developed for measurements of thickness, roughness and defectivity on key components. DDMS uses a revolutionary AI algorithm to detect defects with a four axis scanning system.

The fine tolerances and small scale of defects intrinsic to nuclear and defence projects necessitate a robust approach to measurement. Scantron developed an intelligent vision system to identify and categorise defects, in terms of size and type, on metal or ceramic plates.

The development of bespoke systems for various defence applications is possible thanks to our considerable experience and expertise in this field.

Previous applications of Scantron non-contact measurement solutions for nuclear and defence partners have included:
• Measurement of radius, roughness and width of fine channels
• Dimensions, roughness of thickness of thin panels
• Automated location and inspection of pinhole defects
